One of the “06880” podcast’s favorite guests is Tom Scarice.
Westport’s superintendent of schools is honest, direct, articulate and informative. He speaks in complete paragraphs, uses relatable analogies, understands this town — and clearly loves his job.
Midway through his third year at the helm, he dropped by the Westport Library’s Verso Studios recently.
We spoke about our schools’ climate and culture; COVID, and its after-effects; his goals, and how to measure them; the growing school population, and its impacts; redistricting, and the overwhelming pressures students feel today.
